The Kleinwalsertal with its approximately 5,000 inhabitants extends over an area of 97 km². It is 15 km long and about 6.5 km wide. Surrounded by mountains, you can reach the valley only from Germany, although it belongs to the Austrian federal state of Vorarlberg. It is the third largest tourist destination of Austria, both in summer and winter. Here, the impressive mountain scenery and lots of snow both play an important role. It has one German post code (87568) and one Austrian (6992).
The small village of Hirschegg in Kleinwalsertal is at an altitude of 1,122 m offering various ski lifts, a ski museum and "Mountain shows".
Kleinwalsertal has been inhabited since the Stone Age. Dating back from the Neolithic period some rare artifacts have been found including scrapers, arrowheads and fireplaces. Part of these findings can be seen in the mountain show and convention centre Walserhaus in Hirschegg.
It's a fantastic mountain area for climbing, hiking or skiing with a wonderful landscape in which you can always find quiet places.
